Frequently Asked Questions
A $100 retainer is required for all consultations. This includes a 30 minute phone/text session to review your choice of artwork and confirm all details in completion of the piece. Retainer goes towards the final cost of the piece. You have 30 days to decide on the piece. After 30 days the retainer is kept as payment for the artists' time with consultation. 50% of the total balance is due prior to the artist starting any and all commissions.

Do you have a showroom?
We are an online gallery. From time to time we have on-site, one-night, pop-up exhibitions where everything is about an engaging and fulfilling art experience. Follow IG: @ThePoeticArtiste to stay informed on upcoming events. Paintings purchased at Live Galleries are non-refundable. Retainer is forfeited if painting is not paid in full within 30 days.

Pick ups must be within one month of the sale and any further time will result in a holding/storage fee of $100 per month deducted from current status. Paintings not claimed within 2 months will be forfeited. Please be respectful of my studio space. Pick up your artwork within a reasonable time or you are able to pay for shipping/delivery.
